Yikes. Way to keep it weird, NYC.
It should come as a surprise to exactly NOBODY that New York has more than its share of… let’s call them ‘colorful characters’.
When the whole city has a reputation for being larger than life, you would expect the weirdness of the city’s more ‘eclectic’ personalities to be proportionally extreme.
Bro climbing on the roof of a city bus with a flamethrower to do his own Mad Max impersonation?
That would certainly qualify.

Is this what he had in mind?
Is he a threat to anyone?
That would depend on whether anyone was in harm’s way when he turned the flame jet toward the street below.
He was a rapper.
And now he’s facing charges.
A rapper turned himself into authorities and was charged with reckless endangerment and criminal possession of a weapon after firing a flamethrower into the sky atop an occupied city bus. https://t.co/j1x8eb0cS4 pic.twitter.com/s6ibiJy1zV

Why doesn’t that even begin to surprise us?
